Masters in Research (MRes)

The Masters in Research is an innovative research qualification which allows you to develop generic research knowledge and skills whilst pursuing a subject-based research project.  It differs from taught Masters Degrees such as an MA or MSc.  It is a qualification in its own right as well as a possible entry qualification for higher-level research by MPhil or PhD.  It provides you with a broad appreciation of research methods and methodology including an understanding of the uses and limitations of different research methods.

The MRes will be of interest to you if you wish to develop academic research skills, commission research, or are hoping to progress to an MPhil or PhD, or are already working as a researcher or wishing to do so.

The University currently offers a number of MRes programmes.  For further information, please use the following links:
